Sex education for kindergartners

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (CBS46) -

Kindergartners in Chicago public schools will soon be learning about sex education.  This comes after the Chicago Board of Education approved the policy Wednesday.

The program includes discussions on sexual orientation and gender identity.  Kindergarten and first-grade children will learn about anatomy, healthy relationships and personal safety.

The program also provides students with instruction from pregnancy through birth, puberty and adulthood, human sexuality and the prevention of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV and AIDS.

Right now, sex education doesn't begin until fifth grade in Chicago public schools.
